Yeah, I've got over 2500 CDs in various states of transfer to my HDs, mostly stored as FLAC. My (ever expanding) collection of over 2000 MP3 tracks represents the "cream of the crop" mixed with some interesting, more obscure tracks which I've chosen to work well in shuffle mode. I've been trying to get at least the basic tags and album art into the MP3 files. My MP3 workflow has evolved to WinLAME -> MP3tag -> MP3gain. I may do some cleanup with Cool Edit before encoding when necessary, such as fade-in and fade-out, combining tracks meant to be played together (no gapless necessary for me!), and fixing monarual tracks.
